A Critical Analysis of Environmental Politics
Explores the impact of Africa’s rapidly growing urban population on local resources and the environment, acknowledging the clash between Western focus on sustainable development and the lived realities of residents of often poor, informal settlements.
Lessons from Postcolonialism and the Global South
This book provides new insights into popular understandings of urbanism that emanate from European and North American cities. Myers uses a wide range of case studies from lesser studied cities across the Global South and Global North to present evidence for the need to reconstruct our understanding of ‘good’ urban environments.
